It’s Alive! A Transitional Toddler Room

On my last post I promised that I would show you the new toddler transitional room for the year and a half year old who got kicked out of his nursery to make room for his new sister!

Since this client was getting ready for child number two soon and was not ready to move her son into a real big boy room, we used existing pieces to keep the cost down as much as possible.  My client already had the Hiya crib from Spot on Square and the daybed which was in her home office.  The only additional pieces purchased for the room were the artwork, rug and Expedit bookcases as well as some accessories for the bookshelves.

She wanted to paint some stripes on the wall so we decided on two tones of turquoise to wrap around two of the four walls.

Although there is no specific theme for the room (besides being playful!),  my client fell in love with this series of robot & alien stretch canvas artwork from Oopsy Daisy by Jacqueline Shapiro so we went with it. Since then she has told me many times that her son points them out every morning and after his nap.  Maybe they will all have names soon?

P.S. After this room was photographed, we added these adorable robot pillows from Land of Nod to the daybed for more pops of color in the room.  I can’t wait to convert this into a real big boy room soon once he is potty trained and in pre-school!

I think that the canvases would have their own names soon. Great work on this room. I noticed that you also had a fleshy tone to go with the two tones of blue on one wall. That is lovely. So much color, yet still worked for a boy's room. Proof that you really don't have to go with boring blues and oranges and grays with boys... pastels and great details will do more.

I absolutely love this room---I can't believe she transformed a nursery into a toddler's room with just a few additions and accessories!

At we have lots of wall stickers for kids that are easy ways to reinvent your child's space and change the style. Let us know what you think!

Andrika: This room is AWESOME! I love it! I think that the robots really made a splash in making this a boy's room more than anything! Those pillows are lovely, I can't wait to get them from Land of Nod!
